4.0 out of 5 stars A step back in time, 27 Mar 2009
This review is from: Victorian Farm (Hardcover)
Having thoroughly enjoyed the TV series "Victorian Farm", I was keen to read this book, and was not disappointed. The chapters don't follow the calendar year the way the TV programmes did, but are broken down into various themes such as "Arts and Crafts", "Health and Hygiene", animal husbandry, gamekeeping - everything one could wish to know about life on a farm in the 1880's. It is in an easy to read style, with plenty of photographs. I did notice a lot of typographical errors which I found irritating; perhaps it was rushed into print without due care being taken over proof-reading! I think people who didn't see the programmes would still enjoy it, but it is probably best read as a follow-up to the series.

P. G. Croft says:
All the reviews are excellent and accurate. The point about the typo errors as mention here is true, and the assumption that haste was the cause , was born out by my local high street bookshop owner, who said the BBC were totally surprised, and unprepared for the popular demand for the book, resulting in a hurried re-print, with some additions and ulterations.
